Bold Jumping Spider Phidippus audax

No tarantula can compare with the the antics of a jumping spider in terms of entertainment. Studies have been done documenting the "intelligence" of these spiders as they strategize their attacks on prey. You can almost see them thinking as they direct their large eyes back and forth planning their next leap, even series of leaps to their destination.

The specimen in the video below is an immature. Adults are boldly colored in black and white and much more striking in appearance than immatures. Medium specimens available. Coloration and sexes are not guaranteed.

Photos of this species can be found on Bugguide, here. Specimens are usually black and white, but not always. Requests for orange ones are honored only if orange specimens are available (uncommonly).
